Baby Vest

I finished the little boy vest, except for the fasteners. Can't figure out what I want to use: toggles, buttons, frog closures, snaps... It'll come to me.

I machine washed and dried the vest made from Simply Cotton. I'm really pleased with how the stitches came out. Where the stitches used to have "air" between them they are now plump, cushy, and closer together. The fabric feels firmer, as well. There was a little bit of length shrinkage, as expected with this yarn: 11" before washing, resulting in 10" afterward.
